Scary and Suspenseful
4 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This brilliant, suspenseful little thriller will surprise even the most jaded movie buff. With a fairly original (albeit predictable) plot, great special FX and some mighty terrific acting, the director of this one did a fantastic job and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this fast paced, edgy drama. While some will probably compare it to a "Lifetime for Women" TV movie, there were enough thrills and gratuitous violence to keep me entertained throughout the film. Kathleen Quinlan really went over the top in her role of a psychotic farm woman and reminded me of Kathy Bates in "Misery". The setting was quite creepy and the soundtrack, lighting and camera work were superb. Check it out! 8 stars.
